Garden Museum’s Sowing Roots Photo exhibition

The Garden Museum’s Sowing Roots project is a first-of-its-kind journey into the history of the gardening cultures and traditions that Caribbean people carried with them when they moved to the UK after World War II: from breadfruit, provision grounds, and botanical gardens, to chocho, ackee and the green spaces of South London.

For this intergenerational project young people aged 15-21 recorded the garden journeys of a group of South London gardeners of Caribbean heritage. We were chosen to capture the portraits and stories of these wonderful people. Thank you, Federico Rivas and Ingrid Guyon for their pictures. Funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund Fund.

Hunger and Malnutrition in Senegal Participatory Photography and Video 

In July 2022, ten people from Touba Seras, a village in northern Senegal took part in a unique participatory media project to document the high incidence of hunger and malnutrition affecting their community with increased frequency and severity. The group created a powerful collection of photographs and video footage. They took this opportunity to present the solutions they have put in place and highlight the additional support needed to continue and deepen their responses. Action Against Hunger hopes to use them for awareness-raising in various forms and to support its fundraising efforts in future appeals. .
